Well made and spiced/flavored, Taj Palace offers a good value and selection of Indian foods. We sampled a variety of curries and entrees, all were good, very tasty, offering a good savoriness in their flavoring. Our friends tell us it is always like this, always fresh and constantly good.

Lunch buffet is great. Many of the meals are best I've had in KC with others being among the top. Lamb korma and chili chicken are both top notch.

I find the dinner portions a little small, and also for my family, the entire point of eating Indian is variety. So we love the lunch buffet. Price is around $9. The dishes are on weekly rotation, but they always have butter chicken, spicy chicken, lamb, tandoori chicken, several veggie dishes, pakoras, a basic salad bar, and plenty of naan... More

I eat here at least once a month. It is consistently great food. Though I've never been to India, a friend of mine who spends six months in France and six months in India every year came to visit for a couple of weeks and we went to Taj Palace and he commented that it was authentic and great food....

I've eaten the buffet at this place a couple times and I've been really satisfied. The food is solid and it's hard to beat the location; there's both street and lot parking and it's just down the street from KUMC. will definitely be back.

This place is rather close to my office, so it is a nice getaway when I need some Indian food. Their lunch buffet is well stocked and usually fairly decent. I have been here a couple times and have been satisfied every time. I would be weary with large groups, especially around lunch time as it does get really busy.... More

There are better indian food places in kansas city. The food was fine. but not amazing. If hankering cheaper Indian food in the area it is fine but Westport and Waldo have better places.

My coworkers and I come at least every other month for the lunch buffet. The buffet is a good deal and we always get seconds. They also have mango lassi and chai tea included in the buffet. The owner is very approachable and friendly. There is a good variety of food, some spicy and some not too much, plus about... More

easily one of the worst Indian Buffets in town. The last time I was there, it smelled like someone's dirty basement. The food selections were small, without much flavor. Considering there are better options a very short distance from this place, I'd say you can totally skip this place. Try Korma Sutra in Westport instead, way better. way way way... More
